Oak Leaf + Bubble Nest --- WOW !!!

After doing a 100% water change/tank cleaning, I installed the new Hydro Theo heater and floated an oak leaf in Sparkle's tank.

I wish I had an underwater camera !!!

Sparkle did't even want his breakfast today. He was so busy zooming around and making a gigantic bubble nest!! The underside of the leaf is almost covered + bubble nests are around the leaf also. It is so awesome

I was watching him make the nest and wishing I could get a good video. He has made a few small bubble nests in the past (I never saw him doing the construction), but this time I had a front-row seat

I don't know if this activity is because of the leaf or his tank being heated correctly or both, but I can only guess that he is happy.

At least he stopped biting his tail for now...was bored or tail was too long and fluffy for him.

Bettas like to attach their nests to stuff. One method is putting half a styroform cup in and the betta building their nest under that.

I tried other suggestions posted on threads here...but Sparkle was not interested at all. He must like "natural" items.

Took leaf out today....have to check water parameters. The leaves can throw Ph off. Nest kind of deteriorated anyway. If water is okay...I will put in a fresh leaf.

Very strange thing though ... Sparkle doesn't want to eat. He usually gobbles his pellets like he is starving or something

Hmmmm....I wonder if the leaf made the water taste different so his pellets didn't taste good

I guess a little fasting won't hurt.
